Likely Road, central British Columbia. You see 30 or so deer on the highway at spring time in an hour's drive. I've never hit one, in 20 years.

But getting back to the OP, this is about swerving to connect. That's just sick.

Knock on wood, have had close calls, but never hit one....Parents here 35 years, both combined have hit one, but it ran off just fine.

And yes, to the OP, it is disgusting.........We need a plague.

I agree with the latter of course :), but we don't need a 'plague', humanity just needs to give a communal, "head shake" and realize/remember what's also important.

Box turtles, frogs, bees, bats, salamanders, etc., etc. They are our canarys in a coal mine.

I think it has less to do about being cruel and more about the you need to hit the target effect. Like in bathrooms guys aim better at the urinal when there is something in it. Subconscious thing.  Could be nothing more then that. http://www.hoax-slay...he-toilet.shtml

Nice to know that the majority jumps to the worst possible conclusion though.

I live in southern AZ and have learned to love and value all the wildlife. I have to drive through a lot of desert to get to and from town. It's open range with cattle, wild horses and of course the regulars like coyotes, bobcats, rabbits. The speed limit's 55 but at night I keep my speed down to 40, 45 because it's pitch black. People will pass me going 55, 60. That's nuts! I've seen wrecked cars on the side of the road that have obviously hit something big that ended up "in" the windshield. No common sense!

My dad went on a date with a girl when in his late teens. Her idea of a good time was to drive around King's Park looking for long Neck Tortoises to run over. First and last date with that psycho! Just as well. Could have ended up being my mum lol

Man a Moose makes such a mess when hit by a car,completely flattens a car roof in some cases,pays to be very observant at night,usually very little warning.

Wow...

Whenever I see roadkill, I wonder how people could have hit the animal unless they purposely hit it.


late at night returning home from work I had a rabbit hop onto the road, I actually tried to avoid it but it panic hopped into the path my tires despite me swerving in what would of been safely around it had it stayed still.

When I was in high school I hit three birds in one week once. Two of them hit the SIDE of my car...
Oddly I don't think I've hit a single bird in the 15 or so years since.

The OP is disturbing.

Personally I find your theory a far worse conclusion. If this was something I had done, I'd feel far more comfortable with the idea that I chose to do it out of malice rather than thinking it was a subconscious decision that I did not internally consider. I don't like the idea of any of my actions in general being outside of my decision process. Let alone ending the life of a living thing.
